MSU Riley Center Norman Foote Pre-show Experience
Thursday, November 14

All ticket holders are invited to a Mississippi Children’s Museum-Meridian hands-on preshow experience.  As will all our pre-show experiences over the years, MCM-Meridian has created a magical hour of fun and discovery to enhance the evening’s family-friendly show.  From an instrument “petty zoo” to a BIG keyboard that will get the heart pumping and the tunes playing to a musical coding challenge, the hour-long event will explore the playful world of all things musical. https://www.msurileycenter.com/shows/norman-foote/
